Our liberties just keep pouring out...guess what else will use this data? Yep, GOVERNMENT!

"America is becoming a nation of track-a-holics. We want to go online and track the whereabouts of everything we order -- or do. In the early days of online tracking, UPS had just 100,000 online tracking requests in December 1995. By last December, that number was 27.3 million requests a day. And the marketers that track best, win."

OMG! This is such a great question! Again, what will "Big Brother" do with this information?

"Researchers focused particular attention on the specter that criminals could exploit artificial intelligence systems as soon as they were developed. What could a criminal do with a speech synthesis system that could masquerade as a human being? What happens if artificial intelligence technology is used to mine personal data from smartphones?"

      you can't protect that which you do not control...

You must first ask; is this domain, and all within, yours or already theirs? I agree a Security Gateway device is an obvious necessary entry layer, but also a very important “last stand” exit layer. Hmm...the problem seems to be the threat behind the mouse regardless of platform. Reactive measures inevitably translate too late, and proactive steps prove too painful and hard to accept. This cyber war, with each foray, seem to be lost from the inside. With the desktop compromised the battle is lost, time to shut the gates and call for help. The bits are headed out to those 'bunch of tubes' in the cloud one way or another, and you most likely won’t even know it happened till it’s too late. Then it's just one more story to read about on the net!  -Carl

Of things to come to this country...  -Carl

"'We recommend that the Commonwealth Government takes responsibility for, and accelerates the development of a national policy and open technical standards framework for e-health, and that they secure national agreement to this framework for e-health by 2011-12. These standards should include key requirements such as interoperability, compliance and security. The standards should be developed with the participation and commitment of state governments, the IT vendor industry, health professionals, and consumers, and should guide the long-term convergence of local systems into an integrated but evolving national health information system.'"

"The survey found that close to half of U.S. SMBs (44 percent) were hit by some form of cybercrime. Ten percent of U.S. SMBs surveyed were hit so bad that they had to stop production -- worldwide, the average was 30 percent. Some 50 percent of companies in the survey lost time or productivity as a result of being infected."

"As social networks become more a part of users' lives -- and more a part of business communications -- it's becoming less and less possible for the security team to simply disallow the use of these networks in the enterprise. Yet these networks may also pose serious security risks to your business. How can you strike a balance between providing the access users need while preventing your sensitive data from leaking out -- or malware from creeping in?"
